Online piracy is a massive threat to Amazon but physical pirated DVDs remain a problem too. This week, the company filed a lawsuit against a group of online stores that sell pirated DVDs of key titles such as ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power’ and ‘The Peripheral’. While these DVDs may look real they are definitely pirated, as these series are only available on Amazon Prime.
Amazon is not just the largest e-commerce retailer, the company also has a significant copyright portfolio.
In recent years the company has increased its anti-piracy efforts, both individually and as a member of the Alliance for Creativity and Entertainment (ACE).
The company does all it can to protect popular titles such as The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, The Boys, and The Peripheral, which are typically pirated shortly after their release. The main focus of these anti-piracy efforts is on pirate streaming and download portals, but it doesn’t end there.
